Customer Question
Charlie is 10 yr...

Charlie is 10 yr old doxy-pom. He has food allergies and epilepsy. I feed him Dick Van Patten duck and potato which has brought his seizures down to 3or4 a year. Now he is throwing up his food (not every time he eats). Maybe this food is to rich now. Should I change it??

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Seizures always look scary. Let's get you talking to the Veterinarian. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Charlie?

No thank you, ***** ***** my main concern

Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand Charlie has been vomiting and has a history of food allergies. I am sorry to hear about what has been happening. Does Charlie have a chronic history of vomiting, and does it appear to be increasing in frequency lately? Also, is there any recent food changes? I will be standing by for your reply.
